FINALS Big Threes

They've become part of our league, part of our everyday basketball jargon, from Boston's Allen-Pierce-Garnett to Miami's Wade-LeBron-Bosh combo, they're a focal point of all winning franchises from before these teams and well into the past. Here's my rating of 'big threes' of the league right now:

Atlantic:

3 Boston: Rondo-Pierce-Garnett 3 (Ray gets marginally edged out here)
13 New Jersey: Williams-Humphries-Lopez (Until Okur proves otherwise)
8 Toronto: Calderon-DeRozan-Bargnani
5 New York: Anthony-Stoudemire-Chandler
10 Philadelphia: Holiday-Igoudala-Brand

Central:

2 Chicago: Rose-Deng-Boozer
9 Bucks: Jennings-Jackson-Bogut
12 Pistons: Stuckey-Prince-Monroe
7 Indiana: Granger-West-Hibbert
14 Cleveland: Irving-Jamison-Varejao

Southeast:

15 Charlotte: Augustin-Maggette-Diaw (They're so bad, Kemba almost got in)
4 Atlanta: Johnson-Smith-Horford
1 Miami: Wade-LeBron-Bosh
6 Orlando: Nelson-Richardson-Howard (No, Anderson isn't good enough yet)
11 Washington: Wall-Blatche-McGee (Very close between McGee and Young)

Northwest:

4 Portland: Felton-Wallace-Aldridge
2 Oklahoma City: Westbrook-Durant-Ibaka (Harden just isn't as important)
10 Denver: Lawson-Gallinari-Nene
11 Utah: Harris-Millsap-Jefferson
12 Minnesota: Rubio-Beasley-Love (Pretty Ricky is going to be starting by Feb)

Pacific:

5 LAC: Paul-Griffin-Jordan (Tough between him and Mo/Chauncey)
1 LAL: Bryant-Gasol-Bynum
15 Phoenix: Nash-Hill-Gortat (Free Steve Nash)
6 Golden State: Curry-Ellis-Lee
14 Sacramento: Evans-Thornton-Cousins

Southwest:

7 Dallas: Kidd-Odom-Nowitzki (LO just gets the nod over Marion)
13 New Orleans: Gordon-Kaman-Okafor
9 Houston: Lowry-Martin-Scola
3 Memphis: Gay-Randolph-Gasol
8 San Antonio: Parker-Ginobili-Duncan
